Isabelle Rose Christenson, 10, precious daughter of Michelle and Dan Christenson, passed away Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2008, at home. Isabelle loved the movie “Annie” and was proud to have been an orphan in the Comtra production last year. Believing “you’re never fully dressed without a smile,” Isabelle lived each day to the fullest and touched the lives of everyone she met. She always believed in miracles and was forever grateful for the two donors who saved her life with the transplants of five organs. You can “bet your bottom dollar” that Isabelle is singing “the sun will come out tomorrow” in heaven. Isabelle also is survived by big sister Madeline; grandparents Barb and Jim Shumaker and Paul and Karol Christenson; aunts and uncles Greg and Karen Shumaker, Zach Shumaker and Stacy and Scott Weber; cousins Anna and Aidan Shumaker; great-grandmothers Ellen Altsman and Dorothy Woodfill, and other family and friends. Calling hours will be from 2 to 8 p.m. Friday at DEVLIN FUNERAL HOME OF CRANBERRY, Rochester Road. A funeral service celebrating Isabelle’s life will be at 2 p.m. Saturday in Cranberry Community United Presbyterian Church. Please meet at church. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, 1250 Waterfront Place, Floor 5, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. Note that the contribution is in memory of Isabelle Christenson.
